Illustration I did for a thoughtful commentary piece by Michael Eichler about gay male stereotypes called "Chicken, Twink, 32, Daddy, Troll.” It ran on the now defunct (but still online) website The New Gay.

My Ignatz Award for QU33R came today. 

My Ignatz Award for QU33R came today. 

I contributed to The Infinite Corpse this week, an amazing ongoing comics jam that some of the greatest alt-cartoonists of our day have contributed to. Once you sign up, you are assigned a “parent” strip (i.e. 3 panels done previously by another cartoonist) that you must follow with 3 panels of your own, within one week. I followed the awesome Edie Fake. Click the link above to read the rest of my comic and to explore the multitude of other comics and storylines.  And consider contributing yourself. It’s a lot of fun!

I got this great new scanner for my bday last month, one with a nice big bed that easily accommodates 11 x 14 sized originals (the size I usually draw on). Not only that, I barely had to clean anything on this scan at all. My life feels LUSH.
My first sample scan: the cover of a to-have-something-new mini I did for APE in 2007 (which, coincidentally, is going on at this very moment in SF).

My favorite new read from SPX was the Subcultures anthology, published by ninthartpress. There are a lot of fun comics in here, but the whole of this anthology is greater than the sum of its parts. Taken together, the stories show what members of subcultures all share: an alienation from the culture at large, and a search for belonging.

(Also, I contributed a comic about homeschooling which I’m proud of, and which has not been shown in full anywhere else.)

> I just got mine in the mail from the Editor (hi, Whit!) and plan to read it this weekend! It’s a wonderful subject for an anthology and there are so many tremendously good cartoonists in it, including the OP, Hazel Newlevant. My story, “Comics Nerd: A Brief History,” is the book’s closing piece.

Diary comic #7

My friend Mari made me think of this fleeting happiness stuff with a short comic she did yesterday. So this is dedicated to her, even tho it’s a couple yrs old. Sometimes I think happiness is indeed composed of naps, dogs, the sound of crickets, and beer.

That last panel kills me - it’s exactly how I see texts: as physically leaving their device-of-origin

My latest comic strip restaurant review is online at Twin Cities Daily Planet. Btw, if you are a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, you might be interested in this one. No seriously.
